Although summertime can be unpredictable in the UK, it's always nice to spend some time in the sun! Whether that’s relaxing, or having BBQs with family and friends, we love to make the most of the warm weather. Your Cerris Home provides the great opportunity to do so – here are some ideas:
Decorate your garden
Make your garden feel homely with some decoration! This gives it a personal touch and makes it more accommodating and inviting. You could include:
Fairy lights to lighten up the garden
Seating area for sitting and sunbathing
Garden swing for enjoyable sitting with a cool breeze
Parasol/gazebo to provide some extra shade
A paddling pool to keep cool and for the kids to enjoy
Hammock for some comfortable lounging
This also adds character to your garden and allows you to enjoy the space to its fuller potential!
Hold a BBQ
BBQs are a popular thing to have during the summer months especially and are a great thing to hold amongst family and friends. You could even have a certain theme for the BBQ to add something more – tropical, festival-style: there are lots of possibilities!
Having a game of ring toss or croquet is a great way to have some fun, test your skills and get all the family involved! This is also a great thing to do at a BBQ as a pre-food activity for everyone.
Plant something new
Planting some flowers, plants and more in the garden can encourage and improve the health of the vegetation and even help the local wildlife! It’ll brighten your garden up and add more life to it.
Start a vegetable patch – growing your own vegetable and fruits is a longer project but provides lots of great benefits:
Something to focus on and look after
Encourage the kids to spend more time outside
Great to be able to eat once they are grown
We hope these are helpful ideas for you to use this summer in your garden!

Moving into your new home can be an exciting time, but if you don’t plan things properly it can also involve a lot of time, effort and stress. You can quickly become overwhelmed, with boxes left half unpacked and bubble wrap all over the place.
